Zigbee-ready RF module


Radiocrafts AS, based in Norway, has expanded its product line with a compact Zigbee™-ready module operating at 2.45 GHz. The RC2200 is a complete module with wireless star and mesh networking protocol stack supporting full function device and reduced function device operation with IEEE 802.15.4 compliant PHY and MAC layers. The complete shielded module is only 16.5 x 29.2 x 3.5 mm, optionally available with integrated antenna or RF connector. 128 kB flash memory, 32 digital and analogue 1/0s, 8 channel 10 bit ADC, 6 pin interrupts, UART and SPI interfaces make it possible to embed the complete application in a small module.

The RC2200 integrates a multi-channel RF transceiver with 16 channels, 0 dBm output power and a receiver sensitivity of –94 dBm at 250 kbit/s. Line-of-sight ranges of 100 m can be achieved.
